ABOUT YORK WOMEN'S ASSOCIATION
York Women's Association (formerly known as the Young Women's Club of York) is a community service/social organization which provides opportunities for newcomers and York County residents to become active in the York community. York Women's Association offers monthly club meetings, social activities, educational programs, and community service projects. The York Women's Association provides a friendly and welcoming atmosphere where lifelong friendships can be made.
York Women's Association began as the Young Women's Club of York and was founded in 1941 with just 35 women who desired to serve the York community. The Club hosted a weekly children's radio broadcast and was a sponsor of the first York Children's Concert. During World War II, the Club aided the Red Cross and helped with polio vaccinations. On numerous occasions over the years, we've provided food and clothing to York families in need and made significant contributions to York Hospital via the Hospitality Shop. In 2017, we made the decision to change our name to more accurately reflect who we are today and that we are open to women of all ages.
